As part of a project that cost the Swedish Research Council 2.7 million Swedish crowns, the researcher signed an agreement with the organization he founded and hired his mother and brother-in-law for senior positions.
According to the university’s internal audit, which says that the researcher was guilty of disqualification and should be investigated for a fake, at least 47 fake accounts were found.
All this was discovered when the brother-in-law was fired and contacted the university.
The point now lies with the Personnel Responsibility Committee, reports GP. Researcher refuses to commit any violations.
